Aluminum Sign Cut Options

Cut options are a fantastic way to enhance the shape of your final design. Cut options are always optional and are not a requirement for any order. Some cut finish like oval and circle cuts have automated options where no additional art setup is required. At the same time, halo (contour cuts) and "special" cut options require advanced artwork setup. Here's a link to our guild on how to set up cut files.

Special Cut

With a special cut, the design style is entirely custom to the shape, with no border on the exterior; they may have drill holes in special sizes or even unique placement of holes. The special cut allows you to control the shape of the sign's outside and inside cut paths.

Halo Cut

Halo cuts have also been known to be called contour cuts. The design style is entirely custom to the shape, with a border (in most cases white) around the outside edge of the signage.

The circle cut options indicate the signage is cut into perfect round aluminum signs. There is no need to indicate the circle shape in the file or include a dieline. There is no additional artwork set, and we do ask you have a .25" bleed or upload a square design with colors flooded edge to edge of the artboard.

Yes, aluminum is water, rust and weather proof. Custom metal signs can withstand all weather elements and will hold up well without fading even after years of indoor or outdoor use.

Yes, drill holes go all the way through the board. Pre-drilled holes are designed with screws and bolts to secure the custom metal sign safely to a pole or wall.

Drill holes are .25" and placed .75" on center from each corner the option is selected. Immediately after you purchase your custom metal sign, you will upload your graphics and see a visual representation of the holes in the online proofing stage.

Yes, you can. While aluminum material is fairly easy to drill through with the proper home drill and metal drill bits, it is not recommended.

A standoff looks like a complicated version of a screw, and it is. It’s a separator that’s threaded. What are standoffs? They come in different lengths to raise one material over another. They consist of a wall screw, barrel, and cap, usually made of aluminum. Please take a closer look in detail with images at our blog post.

Standoff holes are .41" and placed .75" on center from each corner the option is selected. Immediately after your purchase, you will upload your graphics and see a visual representation of the standoff holes in the online proofing stage.

visual of rounded corner bendsRounded corners refer to the finish of the physical board itself. The edges will have a nice straight cut finish without rounded corners, where round allows smooth rounded corners. The measurements refer to the corners' severity or degrees (radial bend). Rounded corner sizes from less to more dramatic corners;

  • 1/4"
  • 3/8"
  • 1/2" standard

A Cut option is not required; it is a unique finishing option for shapes other than squares or rectangles. Here is a list of Cut options styles;

  1. Circle-Cut (perfect circles) We prefer you submit full-scale square designs with your colors flooded edge to edge; you will see the final circle layout in the proofing process.
  2. Oval-Cut (perfect ovals) same as the circle above; we prefer you submit full-scale rectangle designs with your colors flooded edge to edge.
  3. Halo-Cut (you are in control of the path the CNC machine takes, unique custom outside shape) 
  4. Special-Cut (custom shape, inside and outside cuts are okay) Both Special & Halo Cuts require additional art set up; check out How to Set Up-Cut Files.

No, custom aluminum signs do not have a matte finish, but the ink does appear matte. We do have an option for a UV gloss finish.
